The Future Of America? – More Than Half Of All U.S. Adults Under Age 30 Now Reject Capitalism

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Young People Abstract - Public DomainA shocking new survey has found that support for capitalism is dying in America.  In fact, more than half of all adults in the United States under the age of 30 say that they do not support capitalism at this point.  You might be tempted to dismiss them as “foolish young people”, but the truth is that they are the future of America.  As older generations die off, they will eventually become the leaders of this country.  And of course our nation has not resembled anything close to a capitalist society for quite some time now.  In a recent article, I listed 97 different taxes that Americans pay each year, and some Americans actually end up returning more than half of what they earn to the government by the time it is all said and done.  So at best it could be said that we are running some sort of hybrid system that isn’t as far down the road toward full-blown socialism as most European nations are.  But without a doubt we are moving in that direction, and our young people are going to be cheering every step of the way.

When I first heard of this new survey from Harvard University, I was absolutely stunned.  The following is from what the Washington Post had to say about it…

The Harvard University survey, which polled young adults between ages 18 and 29, found that 51 percent of respondents do not support capitalism. Just 42 percent said they support it.

It isn’t clear that the young people in the poll would prefer some alternative system, though. Just 33 percent said they supported socialism. The survey had a margin of error of 2.4 percentage points.

Could it be possible that young adults were confused by the wording of the survey?

Well, other polls have come up with similar results

The university’s results echo recent findings from Republican pollster Frank Luntz, who surveyed 1,000 Americans between the ages of 18 and 26 and found that 58% of respondents believed socialism to be the “more compassionate” political system when compared to capitalism. And when participants were asked to sum up the root of America’s problem in one word, 29% said “greed.”

This trend among our young people is very real, and you can see it in their support of Bernie Sanders.  For millions upon millions of young adults in America today, Hillary Clinton is not nearly liberal enough for them.  So they have flocked to Sanders, and if they had been the only ones voting in this election season, he would have won the Democratic nomination by a landslide.

Sadly, most of our young people don’t seem to understand how socialism slowly but surely destroys a nation.  If you want to see the end result of socialism, just look at the economic collapse that is going on in Venezuela right now.  The following comes from  a Bloomberg article entitled “Venezuela Doesn’t Have Enough Money to Pay for Its Money“…

Venezuela’s epic shortages are nothing new at this point. No diapers or car parts or aspirin — it’s all been well documented. But now the country is at risk of running out of money itself.

In a tale that highlights the chaos of unbridled inflation, Venezuela is scrambling to print new bills fast enough to keep up with the torrid pace of price increases. Most of the cash, like nearly everything else in the oil-exporting country, is imported. And with hard currency reserves sinking to critically low levels, the central bank is doling out payments so slowly to foreign providers that they are foregoing further business.

Venezuela, in other words, is now so broke that it may not have enough money to pay for its money.

We are losing an entire generation of young people.  These days, there is quite a lot of talk about how we need to get America back to the principles that it was founded upon, but the cold, hard reality of the matter is that most of our young people are running in the opposite direction as fast as they can.

And Americans under the age of 30 are not just becoming more liberal when it comes to economics.  Surveys have found that they are more than twice as likely to support gay rights and less than half as likely to regularly attend church as the oldest Americans are.

So why is this happening?

Well, the truth is that our colleges and universities have become indoctrination centers for the progressive movement.  I know, because I spent eight years at public universities in this country.  The quality of the education that our young people are receiving is abysmal, but the values that are being imparted to them will last a lifetime.

And of course the same things could be said about our system of education all the way down to the kindergarten level.  There are still some good people in the system, but overall it is overwhelmingly dominated by the progressives.

Meanwhile, the major entertainment providers in the United States are also promoting the same values.  In a recent article entitled “Depressing Survey Results Show How Extremely Stupid America Has Become“, I discussed a Nielsen report which detailed how much time the average American spends consuming media on various electronic devices each day…

Watching live television: 4 hours, 32 minutes

Watching time-shifted television: 30 minutes

Listening to the radio: 2 hours, 44 minutes

Using a smartphone: 1 hour, 33 minutes

Using Internet on a computer: 1 hour, 6 minutes

Overall, the average American spends about 10 hours a day consuming one form of entertainment or another.

When you allow that much “programming” into your mind, it is inevitable that it is going to shape your values, and our young people are more “plugged in” than any of the rest of us.

So yes, I believe that it is exceedingly clear why we should be deeply concerned about the future of America.  The values that are being relentlessly pounded into the heads of our young people are directly opposed to the values that this nation was founded upon, and it is these young people that will determine the path that this country ultimately takes.

    So when young people dismiss the fascism that’s going on and want change, the older generations calls that socialism. But when the stock market surges to new highs despite all the bad economic data and companies going bankrupt leading to mass layoffs, the older generation proudly calls that capitalism. I’ll never understand this world.

    • srkonx

      Watch out! When a so called AUTHENTIC restaurant 25 plus years in business serves up lo mein noodles and Tyson frozen so called authentic meatballs and 99 cent bread from Albertson’s for a whooping $13.00? Watch out! The shovernment is not the only fakers in town, and the urban streets are literally lined with them. Doesn’t 15.00$ an hour sound right about now? Now that middle class restaurateurs have to join the lying proganda to survive? What does that say for your US $ dollar now?

      • srkonx

        Or say about our food supply now?

    • Bill

      Confusion prevents understanding.

  • K

    This Country has been fascist for some time now. The young people are still taught we are Capitalist. Since most young people, seem to lack the skill of independent thought. Therefore they continue to believe, what they have been taught. The parents also are partly to blame. When was the last time you checked what your kids are being taught? And who is teaching them?

    • Bill

      You get it.

    • Mark

      You hit it right on and agree.

    • Lennie Pike

      Yes, you get it!

    • Steeve Girard

      Aye!

  • Barry Goldwater

    Correction.
    We’re a crony capitalist nation where a few super companies are favored by the government and a series of laws and regulations hamper the creation of and proliferation of viable competitors. The crony corporations feed the politicians and politicians in turn act to protect their benefactors.
    The system is rigged.

    • Bill

      You also get it.

      • SunnyFlaSnotress

        “more than half of all adults in the United States under the age of 30 say that they do not support capitalism at this point.”
        Another TRASH STATISTIC that Michael has dug out of the dumpster to make a windy story of.
        Obviously half the adults under 30 were not included in the survey

        • Rorschach

          So you dug yourself out of the trash Sunny? I think everybody knew that already.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            No Rorschach, I dug your momma out of the dumpster but she’s still too ashamed to come back to society.

          • Rorschach

            So you dug yourself and your “momma” out of the dumpster? Okay that makes even more sense.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            No.. Your momma.

          • Rorschach

            So your momma is called “Your momma” and you both dug yourselves out of the dumpster. No wonder.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            No, your momma is your momma and she is ashamed of you.

          • Rorschach

            So “your momma” is “your your momma”. Wow no wonder you both dug yourselves out of the dumpster and right back into it.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            Rorschach’s momma is living in a dumpster and is too ashamed to return to society.

          • Rorschach

            So your momma is living in a dumpster ashamed of society. Everybody knew that.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            Nope, yours.

          • Rorschach

            I know yours is living in a dumpster but it seems you are too ashamed.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            No no no.. it’s your momma.

          • Rorschach

            So your momma is called “no no no it’s your momma”.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            Nope, I’m referring to your momma.

          • Rorschach

            So you are referring to your momma as “no no no it’s your momma”.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            Nope, I’m saying to your momma.

          • Rorschach

            So you are saying that to your momma as “no no no it’s your momma”. Makes sense.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            You know I’m talking about your momma

          • Rorschach

            So you know you are talking about your momma?

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            It’s your momma for sure.

          • Rorschach

            So you agree that it’s your momma.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            No I assert it’s your momma.

          • Rorschach

            So you continue to assert that it is your momma.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            Negative.. it’s your momma

          • Rorschach

            Are you too ashamed to assert that it’s your momma?

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            No, I know for a fact, it’s your momma.

          • Rorschach

            So you know it’s a fact and you assert that it’s your momma.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            You misinterpret.. it’s your momma.

          • Rorschach

            So you are misinterpreting your momma.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            No, you misinterpret me.

          • CASTIEL

            Lol….discussing with her its like trhowing gasoline to a fire…Just call Putin and send a nuke to her location 🙂

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

          • CASTIEL

            It’s all about you and your momma.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            I’m referring to you and yours.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            Wrong Rorschach, it was you and your momma.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            No, I dug you and your momma out, but your momma ran back.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            No Rorschach, I dug you out.

        • Rick

          I have to agree with you on this one. Obviously if you go to the zoo, or to the sewage plant and ask the people there what it smells like, you will get a pretty specific answer. So when he goes to the universities, and the media and asks if they support socialism, well, you pretty much know the answer.

          • Chef Sp

            I duno….I work with a lotsa lotsa young people….first off…they don’t even understand what capitalism is….they don’t get that when the G bails out crap-banks…..that is not capitalism. They actually BLAME that on capitalism. They be retarded

        • Lennie Pike

          Brilliant!

          And you don’t have to flip a coin 1 Billion times to know that the end result will be very close that 500,000,000 times it was heads, and 500,000,000 times it was tails.

          Next time Michael, makes sure that you bring enough survey forms for everyone and not only for half the adults under the age of 30 in the entire country!

          • Lennie Pike

            You don’t get that one do you Snot? Too true, too honest, too simple, too right.

            If you need it splained to you – just ask, especially the second paragraph.

          • SunnyFlaSnotress

            Get what one Pike? Skewed trash statistics?

          • Lennie Pike

            You did ask, but you asked about “skewed trash statistics” and not about what I was referring to which is now obvious that you do need splained – it is what I referred to in the second paragraph of what I wrote. If you want THAT splained – just ask.

            And by the way, there are some of the best comments ever in the history of TECB posted for this article (including those of Rorschach and Castiel probably) about the present economic system and system of government in the U.S. and all you can contribute is to bait commentators into trading yomamma insults – way to go and thanks a lot.

      We who work are the wealth creators. People who choose not to are the parasites. We need to demand that the parasites become wealth creators. Government/slave education is the problem. The victims of government/slave education are learning how to become: serfs, employees, government workers, Marxists, losers, cowards, parasites, leeches, bums, homeless, jobless, people. We need to evolve private/self education to such a degree that even the public school morons will need to pay attention. Government schools are obsolete. They are a joke. They barely teach people. They simply move people to the next level of worthless education. We need business and wealth creation taught in school. We need entrepreneurship, accounting, business math, and small business ownership taught in high school. We need to redesign the context of education. We need education to be focused upon the adult private sector reality of business, owning businesses, and wealth creation. We need to out-perform the Left. They are lazy Marxist potheads. We can defeat them.

      True. I suspect that the kids of today have no concept of pure Capitalism or that it is the cornerstone of Liberty. Their perceptions have been warped by the media and their teachers. They witness Crony Capitalism/Fascism on a daily basis and are told that it is Capitalism. Is it any wonder why they are angry, confused and disenfranchised. The Cloward-Piven strategy appears to be working,

    • WeRThrough

      EXACTLY Barry!!!

    • Rorschach

      I was going to mention that. True capitalism does not exist in America. It’s crony capitalism aka Corporatism. Also fascism was described as a merger of government and private sector so that’s applicable here.

      • Steeve Girard

        Corporate Fascism

        • Rorschach

          Aka Corporatism.

    • Lennie Pike

      I agree that Crony Capitalism is what “we” have in the U.S., but think that it can be substituted for the term Fascism. Since Crony Capitalists own our government (The State) through the use of bribery and the creation of it’s “money” – then it means that they are The State, which means that Mussolini’s definition of Fascism is applicable – everything of, by, in, and for the State.

            There is no other way to describe truthfully the Abrahamic religions, than being a worship of “wieners”. It’s all about sex, control, patriarchalism and domination of women.

            And also it includes a lot of sexual scandals with the Natives in some colonized continents. Also presidential sex scandals are because of those belief systems.

          • Lennie Pike

            All that sounds like it could make some sense if looked at from a human perspective but Human Beings are obviously not God.

            To most people it is obvious that men and women have different talents and abilities, and were naturally given different tasks. To most it is obvious that men are the ones who should be the leaders in the area of spirituality which I would not call domination of women. It is also wrong to lump Islam, Judaism, and Christianity all into the same category. Unlike a Muslim man, a true Christian man will not dominate his wife but will be a team mate with her with her in charge of the things that require her natural talents that God created. In most cases Christian couples do have regular sex with each other. Liked that one did ya?

            Most people of the World either believe that either God has decided that Humans should be monogamous, or that there are many very good reasons that they should be whether He decided that or not – I am sure that the answer is it is both. Just about every society on Earth being of Abraham or not naturally believe that monogamy is the best way for Humans to live, and I’d bet the reason they naturally believe that way is that God instilled that belief into them whether they are Believers or not.

            I think that from God’s perspective, what you said is totally irrelevant since He decides what is right and wrong and not us.

            And it’s not only the “damn European descendants who are trying to impose a world order on the rest of us – for one, the Chinese are in on it too. It is obvious from their philosophy of evil that the people who are trying to impose the NWO can be categorized by one and only one criteria – they are against The God Of Abraham.

            So what are you going to do when the very high possibility occurs of non-european Chinese troops arriving to haul you away (for writing here against the NWO) and you realize that you were wrong? God will accept you immediately – just ask in the name of his son Jesus Christ.

            Discussion on a topic like this can be endless – there’s just a little sample of what I believe and for Good reason.

            All of us believers used to be like you – seek and ye shall find, knock and the door shall be opened to you.

This is no reason to despair, mind you, because we never stop developing. So, no matter how brainwashed, blind, and stupid someone is, you can always show them the truth, teach them not to trust, not to obey… They might reject you at first, they might even fight you, but you must insist, because if you don’t… no one else will. “Be the change you want to see in the world”

    America has been abundantly blessed of God. She has become fat and weak though. She has lost her moorings of Christian faith and drifted away from her own charter documents.

    We have the nanny state backing loans so that Americas youth can go to the progressive universities. These loans can not be rolled up in a bankruptcy, which helps if you have not enough income. Friskies went from 50 cents a can to 69 cents a can.

    We have a bully and a leftist feminist most likely to choose from. This is how far America has come.

    She’ll become weaker at the same time be a bully in the world and to her own citizens. Look at the choices the people have.

    A Godless society, a culture of entertainment and death for the most part.

          • Lennie Pike

            Then is there anyone between the legs of Buddha? That wacko religion sounds a lot like yours but since it’s not yours – there must be someones’s wiener there somewhere – and if there is one there, which with Buddha might be hard to find, I can’t see how there’s not a wiener hanging around your religion somewhere also – are you sure you have made a thorough enough search?

          • Lennie Pike

            I only point that out now because initially you claimed that only “Abrahamic” religions worshiped wieners, but now you have added two non-Abrahamic religions – so now that puts Buddhism (and most others) a religion which seems to be similar to yours on the table.

          I love that comeback!

          I think you just proved she/he/it actually does believe that God exists but it’s just that she/he/it will not admit it – just as George Soros who is obviously a satan worshipper also claims to be an atheist and that God does not exist.

          Vampires are widely know to be satanic in nature, so why would one want to be associated with a vampire if one did not believe that God exists?

          How one can believe that satan exists but that God does not exist makes no sense at all – to me someone who makes that claim sounds like a liar – but that is satan’s name: the father of liars – go figure.

          And by the way, all of these satan worshipers who live in fear because they have no belief that God will provide for them, or in a God who created a perfect world capable of providing for all – those who support Agenda 21 – they all are lying about what Agenda 21 actually is so to implement it because the 99.9% (but falling) of people who are not satan worshipers would never agree to implementing it – especially since it will prevent the usage of most of the World’s available farmland to be used for the purpose of sustaining Humans – or will it actually be used for that but controlled by control freak thug know-it-alls who will decide how and to whom to distribute what is produced? – if anything actually is produced. Nothing distributes anything better and for the best welfare of everyone than FREE MARKET ENTERPRISE – a proven fact – remember how the U.S.A. used to be?

            Maybe somewhere in her/his/it’s future, like that of Jake in The Blues Brothers, someone like The Reverend James Brown will shout over to her – “DO YOU SEE THE LIGHT???!!!!!!!!!!! DO YOU SEE THE LIGHT??!!!!!!!!!!!!! DO YOU SEE THE LIGHT???!!!!!!!!!!! If so, then she/he/it should keep her/his/it’s name, but I propose that she/he/it changes it to something else for the time being.

    A country’s life is a lot like a persons life…they are born, have a youth, enter adulthood and finally get old, go through dementia and then die. I think we are entering the dementia (socialism) phase, the faster it dies the sooner there is a small chance for a new beginning, but it’s going to be far more bloody than the first American Revolution…not looking forward to it.

      crony capitalism is as much collectivism as socialism is.

      • Lennie Pike

        And crony capitalists will dole out as much socialism in the form of entitlements that is necessary to get away with their crime – they control the creation of “money”, so what will it hurt – a little inflation while they are robbing us blind and taking control of everything? And there’s always the next currency or gullible people of whatever country waiting in the wings when it’s necessary for these parasites to find another host. When that time comes they already have most of the real wealth and are firmly in control of the enforcement apparatus. We need to hold onto our firearms – we’re gonna need em.

    • michael malachi

      It seems like the children of today, and I mean many adult children also, are so poorly educated and so lazy that they don’t even know when they are lied to. They don’t have a clue what capitalism is or what life is supposed to be in that system. It is too easy for them to vote that which they are programed for and live off of whatever or whoever they can. It saddens me that things have gotten so bad so quickly. Much of the reason is a lack of God and a search to fill the gap with something, anything that they can find. With so much exposure to tv, internet and their devices, the poisoning of the foods and water, chemtrails and a completely taken over education system – the children of today don’t have much of a chance.
      It is amazing that the number is around 50% – with all that is stacked against them that number is actually not too bad – though it is not at all a desirable percentage. I believe that the solution could be a complete shutdown of the tv and internet. Then they would be forced to think for themselves and find something productive to do with their time. Not reality I know but what other solutions is there?

  • Mark

    We were born into a ready-made system:

    The laws that are in place today were made protect the rich from the poor.

    The Controllers aka the ‘Money Interest’ ‘Bankers’ and so on, maintain control by means of compartmentalization of governmental agencies, banking interest and various accredited and unaccredited institutions’.

    Money is one of the many tools which the controllers’ have built into their system to subjugate humanity.

    The Main Stream Media news agencies are continually selling us the Government.

    Institutionalize religions are continually selling us the government.

    ‘Which begs the question, why are these agencies and institutions working so hard to sell us something that is already established?

    Why are they selling us Government???’

    The answer is:

    1. Government is the hammer which the controllers’ wield.

    2. Institutionalize religions are the controllers’ tools of division.

    3. Main Stream Media was established to induce or reinforce behavior favorable to Governmental objectives.

    We are on the precipice of worldwide financial insolvency; we must be prepared to act, or at the very least support a new system.

    In short, out with the Jew, in with the new.

    Capitalism was useful 100+ years ago when scarcity of resources was a very REAL problem and there wasn’t enough to go around. We now live in a time of abundance where we have too much of the necessities of life. Thousands of houses are boarded up when there a people sleeping on the streets, and supermarkets throw away millions of tonnes of unsold food every year when there are people starving. I’m not pro-socialism in the traditional sense of the term, I’m pro a Resource Based Economy promoted by the Zeitgeist Movement and The Venus Project, where the planets resources are the common heritage of everyone. I invite you all to research and RBE.

  • mtntrek3

    Capitalism is the best way for sure, however when morals/ethics exit the scene……….. it results in the big corporations along w/ big banks, big government trampling we the people. Greed and control take precedence.

  • billtheguy

    My kids, in their 20’s, have this same delusion. I asked my son “what if you come up with an idea that made you a million dollars?” He said “I would donate some of it.” I said with socialism, you would share it all. My point is; yes, you donate to help the needy as you earn. But you earned it, your idea, why should you give it ALL away? You don’t want to be the people that give it all away and have nothing for yourself. This may seem greedy, but its not.

  • Orac4Prez

    Of course most of the Millennials would say that Socialism is better than Capitalism. After all, if the economy is so bad who can you blame but the super rich (crony) capitalists. As you have stated, the top 1% have hoarded all the power and money and barely pay any tax. The present and past governments have done nothing to ensure the rich or super rich pay their “fair” share of tax. Capitalism has died in the US, except for the super rich. And it is hardly surprising that Church attendance has been failing for years. After all, the US is the home of the “Name it and Claim it” or “Blab it and Grab it” form of corrupt Christianity spouting the “Prosperity Gospel” , which says if you aren’t rich its because you aren’t a good Christian.

    • mtntrek3

      Yep, the name it and claim it crowd concerning certain evangelists and their followers are deceived. The notion that God is the way to earthly riches isn’t correct. God may bless certain people of His w/ much earthly wealth, but that isn’t always the case. We are to be content w/ what we have………. the main thing is God will meet our needs, not necessarily our wants. If one were to automatically receive much wealth in this world once they become Christians………. everyone would want to become a Christian just so they could be rich in earthly terms also. That would put riches of this world ahead of God. God first………. then God will provide our needs and then possibly increase our earthly wealth as He sees fit.

    When our “capitalist” system starts to share the wealth, then you’ll see support for capitalism among young, well educated Americans.

    • kfilly

      That’s part of the problem. Most young are not smart. They are indoctrinated. I always wondered how dictators like Hitler, Stalin, and Mao could rise to power as the nation stood by. I no longer wonder as I am watching it happen here. Amerikans are stupid.

  • Illegal

    This is more than the education system. Parents have also contributed to the problem. Look at what material possessions these kids have – cell phones, video games, computers, expensive clothing, jewelry and more. The kids have no money sense as to what it takes to pay for these items. There used to be opportunities to have small jobs – baby sitting, newspaper routes, and more in the past, but those are gone now. How many parents have jobs as small business owners? Many parents work for government or for a company that does not require money making skills. That is why workers are demanding $15 an hour. They have no concept as to how money is created. Go to a country where the worker makes $10 a day at their main job. Many may have a small business that they work at at night.

    Most kids have no concept of private property and free markets. It is understandable because capitalism betrayed both. Capitalism is all about money and its lenders.

In the ’40s or ’50s, he said the US would eventually become a socialist country. Research by liberal professors found, to them, astounding results: Conservatives work harder, feel happier, have closer families, take fewer drugs, give more generously,, value honesty more, are less materialistic and envious, whine less, and even hug their children more than Liberals. This is from “Makers and Takers” by Peter Schweizer. It’s all documented, so don’e argue with me; buy the book. It’s also apparent that most Conservatives are Christians.

        Isaiah 45:22 (KJV)

        “Look unto me and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.”

        Acts 17 The Message (MSG)

        They took the road south through Amphipolis and Apollonia to Thessalonica, where there was a community of Jews.
        Paul went to their meeting place, as he usually did when he came to a town, and for three Sabbaths running he preached to them from the Scriptures.
        He opened up the texts so they understood what they’d been reading all their lives: that the Messiah absolutely had to be put to death and raised from the dead, there were no other options, and that “this Jesus I’m introducing you to is that Messiah.”

        Some of them were won over and joined ranks with Paul and Silas, among them a great many God-fearing Greeks and a considerable number of women from the aristocracy.
        But the hard line Jews became furious over the conversions.
        Mad with jealousy,
        they rounded up a bunch of brawlers off the streets and soon had an ugly mob terrorizing the city as they hunted down Paul and Silas.

        They broke into Jason’s house, thinking that Paul and Silas were there. When they couldn’t find them, they collared Jason and his friends instead and dragged them before the city fathers, yelling hysterically,
        “These people are out to destroy the world, and now they’ve shown up on our doorstep, attacking everything we hold dear! And Jason is hiding them, these traitors and turncoats who say Jesus is king and Caesar is nothing!”

        The city fathers and the crowd of people were totally alarmed by what they heard. They made Jason and his friends post heavy bail and let them go while they investigated the charges.

        That night, under cover of darkness, their friends got Paul and Silas out of town as fast as they could. They sent them to Berea, where they again met with the Jewish community.
        They were treated a lot better there than in Thessalonica. The Jews received Paul’s message with enthusiasm and met with him daily, examining the Scriptures to see if they supported what he said.
        A lot of them became believers, including many Greeks who were prominent in the community, women and men of influence.

        But it wasn’t long before reports got back to the Thessalonian hard line Jews that Paul was at it again, preaching the Word of God, this time in Berea.
        They lost no time responding and created a mob scene there, too.
        With the help of his friends, Paul gave them the slip, caught a boat and put out to sea. Silas and Timothy stayed behind. The men who helped Paul escape got him as far as Athens and left him there.
        Paul sent word back with them to Silas and Timothy: “Come as quickly as you can!”

        The longer Paul waited in Athens for Silas and Timothy, the angrier he got all those idols!
        The city was a junkyard of idols.

        He discussed it with the Jews and other like-minded people at their meeting place. And every day he went out on the streets and talked with anyone who happened along.
        He got to know some of the Epicurean and Stoic intellectuals pretty well through these conversations.
        Some of them dismissed him with sarcasm: “What an airhead!”
        But others, listening to him go on about Jesus and the resurrection, were intrigued:
        “That’s a new slant on the gods. Tell us more.”

        These people got together and asked him to make a public presentation over at the Areopagus, where things were a little quieter.
        They said, “This is a new one on us. We’ve never heard anything quite like it. Where did you come up with this anyway?
        Explain it so we can understand.”
        Downtown Athens was a great place for gossip.
        There were always people hanging around, natives and tourists alike, waiting for the latest tidbit on most anything.

        So Paul took his stand in the open space at the Areopagus and laid it out for them.
        “It is plain to see that you Athenians take your religion seriously. When I arrived here the other day, I was fascinated with all the shrines I came across. And then I found one inscribed, to the god nobody knows.
        I’m here to introduce you to this God so you can worship intelligently, know who you’re dealing with.

        “The God who made the world and everything in it, this Master of sky and land, doesn’t live in custom-made shrines or need the human race to run errands for him, as if he couldn’t take care of himself.
        He makes the creatures; the creatures don’t make him.
        Starting from scratch, he made the entire human race and made the earth hospitable, with plenty of time and space for living so we could seek after God and not just grope around in the dark but actually find him.
        He doesn’t play hide-and-seek with us. He’s not remote; he’s near.
        We live and move in him, can’t get away from him!
        One of your poets said it well:
        ‘We’re the God-created.’
        Well, if we are the God-created, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to think we could hire a sculptor to chisel a god out of stone for us, does it?

        “God overlooks it as long as you don’t know any better, but that time is past.
        The unknown is now known, and he’s calling for a radical life-change.
        He has set a day when the entire human race will be judged and everything set right.
        And he has already appointed the judge, confirming him before everyone by raising him from the dead.”

        At the phrase “raising him from the dead,” the listeners split: Some laughed at him and walked off making jokes; others said,
        “Let’s do this again. We want to hear more.”
        But that was it for the day and Paul left.
        There were still others, it turned out, who were convinced then and there and stuck with Paul, among them Dionysius the Areopagite and a woman named Damaris.”

    They are rejecting a system where debt is money and money is an asset and the only way to pay back debt (money owed) is to create new debt (new money) to pay back the older debts….a ponzi scheme that has been running now for 3 1/2 centuries and is about to collapse….but not before the banking cabal which creates the debt from nothing gets to foreclose on entire nations, see Greece and too many other nations. Then there is their corporate entourage owned by the banking cabal ready to make resource grabs when their banker benefactors have broken these nations on a wheel of debt. Is anyone surprised that any sane person would reject such a system of planned plundering. The banking cabal seeks to “inventory and control all land, all water, all minerals, all plants, all animals, all energy, all production, all construction, all education, all information, all human habitation and all humans”- Rosa Koire, and I might add all through the issuance of debt as money all owed to the banking cabal.

    My children are doing extremely well since they did not buy into this socialist, “we are all equal”, “share the wealth”, “give back to society”.. BS.

    I had them both read Atlas Shrugged at 18 of age. We talked all the time about politics, people, welfare, race, religion, paper money. They all went to college, all graduated in the top 1% (if not The top student in their field/class).

    Yes, I am bragging since I am right. They didn’t wait for the Government, Church, etc to help. They did it, and if they keep it going, they will never have to worry about much at all. That is how it works.

    So stop complaining and start changing to REALITY.

    There is a critical difference between “Capitalism” and Free Enterprise.

    Cuba, China, North Korea, etc are all Capitalist. They are NOT Free Enterprise. This is overlooked and not discussed and is one of the major problems with this discussion.

    Capitalism is not the issue. Free Enterprise is. If a society has Free Enterprise, things will work out better. Capitalism, like “Agriculturalism” or “Industrialism” is nothing but a system of production. It has nothing to do with Freedom.

    • Steeve Girard

      However, there are ideologies that has to do with Freedom: Religion and Social Order Systems (Communism, Socialism, Libertantism, Democracy).

  • Jack Frost

    When you rob Peter to reward Paul, you can always count on the support of Paul. These surveys are obviously locating those who aspire to fill the role of Paul. Plus they are not aware the entire scheme fails when Peter either is tapped out or converts to another Paul. They know nothing of history from attending school where the initial colonies almost failed from starvation when socialism was the rule of the day. So long as they suffer under their preferred system. more power to them. Perhaps some Russian type deprivation is in order to assist them in comparing economic systems. Reality gives the test first, then the lessons.

  • amongoose

    So who do they think will make their iphones, and employ them to buy them?
    Or is that the governments duty?

  • Lennie Pike

    It wouldn’t make any difference if no one rejected “Capitalism” today because in 1992 President George H.W. Bush signed America up for Agenda 21 which means no property rights, no U.S. Constitution, no U.S. Sovereignty – in other words like the a$$hole is famous for saying – ” A New World Order”. And what a wierdo he was – fathered a couple of brilliant sons also, and some say his Father-in-Law was not that nice of a guy- at all.

    And by the way, Free Market Enterprise is a better term to use than Capitalism, since most people now equate “capital” with fiat “money” – created out of thin air by a criminal gang. So maybe these young people who hate “Capitalism” have a point due to their mistaken belief that Crony Capitalism under a completely rigged financial system is the same thing as Free Market Enterprise enforced by Financial Regulators enforcing a Rule Of Law which is equally fair to all participants on the playing field.

    Part of the reason young people hate “Capitalism” may be that they have it confused with Fascism which is the actual form of government we have in the U.S.. The form of government should already appear to them to be socialism due to the huge amount of spending on entitlements necessary to pull off the scam, but it doesn’t because it is actually Fascism – and the reason they hate it so much.

    So they will chose to accept a harder form of Fascism than the soft form they now live under thinking it will make their lives better. Like it’s not going to happen anyway whether they get what they think they want or not – if there is not a fight to take back our country, and almost all other countries also from globalist totalitarians very soon, in the end, the entire world will be like one big Venezuela but much much worse. At one time the Venezuelans wanted the system they have now. Like Tony Montana said: “Look at you now.” And as the bad guy in “No Country For Old Men” said to Woody Harrelson: “If the rule that you followed brought you to this, than of what use was the rule?”

    It should make one wonder whether all of the people of the world will be following and living under the same rules under agenda 21, or if some will be more equal than others – like elites who demand that Americans be disarmed while they be allowed the right to have armed body guards.

  • sherlock32555

    They are scared that they can’t take care of themselves and need the government to show them how to think and everyone else because everyone knows how to make it and these people are mad at the rest of us. that they are not like them.

  • Joltin Joe

    Capitalism, since when has that worked in america? Pre 1913 maybe, we have been corrupted since then by the FEDERAL reserve (as federal as federal express) If you want our country back, kick out the blood sucking banking cartels.

  • DJohn1

    In order for capitalism to work it has to provide a reward for working. Namely in this case a paycheck that not just pays the bills it also gives you money to spend as well.
    Capitalism works great for someone who has inherited a huge fortune that someone else built.
    Capitalism works great if the deck is not stacked against the common person out there and it is and has been for a very long time.
    What we currently have is not capitalism by any stretch of the imagination.
    What we have is a world trade organization trying to stretch the money to every corner of the Earth and to people in extreme poverty.
    Retail under this world trade and world employment people are competing with labor at a much lower hourly rate than the one we have here in this country.
    Thus you have your India and China labor attempting to compete with our wages here at home. Isn’t going to happen. The entire system is rigged against the American worker.
    IF they were playing on the same economic field as we are it might have worked. But they are not. Neither do our antique system of laws even allow us to play on the same field.
    Sherman Anti-trust applies to our companies but not to their companies in their countries. So they are free to create much more efficient and better engineered cars simply because they are allowed to collaborate between companies to do so. They are allowed government help in engineering the new product where our big 3 cannot even lunch together.
    SO if someone asked me if capitalism here works? I would have to reply that until we completely overhaul every economic law we have in this country and place our industry on the same playing field as they are using then the answer is no. It doesn’t work.
    Our answer used to be something that did work. That was the use of barriers that kept unfair competition out of this country. It put them on an even status by using price controls called tariffs in place. Effectively controlling our purchase price and limiting competition.
    To do so today would be a complete disaster raising the price of everything against our wages and effectively bankrupting the entire middle class of this country and the poor.
    When we did away with the counter force of the Unions we effectively destroyed the middle class of this country at that point in time.
    The key here is balance. And that balance between wages and company products is long gone.
    Isolationism used to work. In today’s world, not sure it would.
    The devil of the situation is that until balance is achieved in such a manner that people get raises to keep up with inflation nothing I see out there is going to work.
    Our entire economic system was based on people getting raises and keeping up with prices on everything. Even the Social Security raises were based on keeping up with inflation produced effectively through the Federal counterfeiting of money.
    That system depended on people having jobs. Whoops, Jobs?
    So basically signing trade agreements with other countries helps corporations make products cheaper at the expense of those jobs here.
    But if those jobs do not exist anymore then the corporation that did this is a traitor to this country and its labor force.
    Because their profit depends on our making enough money to afford to do business with them retail.

    • Steeve Girard

      No! Capitalism is a goal achieving system.
      If it has no real enemy to destroy.
      No grand feat to accomplish.
      No great expanded structure to build.
      .
      It is condemned to fail, because the means of production, stagnates in the hands of the top 1%.

    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda.
    Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party
    line in textbooks.

    18. Gain control of all student
    newspapers.

    19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack

    All the above are from the Communist Goals (1963) which were read into the Congressional record in 1963. The whole list can be found on the net by doing a Google on Communist Goals Congressional Record.

    As far as the schools/universities are concerned, it looks as though they have accomplished their goal. In reality they have accomplished much more. Even though many think Communism is dead, it is alive and well in the schools and universities.

    I think what young people are looking for is balance. Currently they see runaway capitalism as not being good for the majority if capitalism means giving all of the money to the 1% at the top while letting the others scrounge around at the bottom. A good example is Yahoo having Marissa Meyers as the CEO doing a poor job, so she has decided to lay off thousands of workers. However, if she gets the boot for doing a lousy job, her severance package will be about $55 million. This is the kind of nonsense that people are tired of. As politicians question whether or not we can afford a $15 per hour minimum wage, you have CEO’s who are losing billions of dollars getting rewarded with golden parachutes. This is the kind of nonsense people are getting upset about. Taxpayers in America pay quite a bit and get very little in return. Under the Obama Administration, we have racked up $10 trillion in debt, and that’s after taking in trillions of dollars in tax revenue, yet we remain deeply in the hole financially, and are approaching a national debt of $20 trillion with nothing to show for it. Hillary is running around talking about equal pay for women and family leave, which is really kind of stupid when most of the middle class Americans are just trying to keep a basic pay check coming in. Marissa Meyers is a good example of how the unequal pay argument for women is weak. It depends on what kind of job you have and at what level. Marissa is no better than the male CEO’s who have held those positions and gotten paid lots of money for doing nothing. The young people who support Bernie are looking for a fairer system. For what Yahoo would pay Marissa to leave for doing a lousy job, they could retain those several thousand employees they are planning to lay off. That’s what the young people are looking for. Fairness. And, having Medicare for all would actually save the country money in the long run, because we already pay into Medicare through FICA on a payroll taxes. Obamacare is a failed system and needs to be repealed. Young people recognize that Medicare has been successful for 50 years, and by adding on younger and healthier people and taking the money we are already wasting on Obamacare and Medicaid expansion, we could actually have one portable national plan for any citizens. Public education is also something we already have, so expansion of public education to make our colleges more affordable should not be a stretch. Every state has state universities and colleges that already receive tax dollars. We need an audit of how they are spending tax dollars to assure that money is being spent on education and not $5 million per year football or basketball coaches. The young people just want more accountability for how our tax dollars are being spent. And instead of comparing their ideas to Venezuela, I think more are comparing the USA to countries like Germany, Denmark, or our neighbor to the north Canada which as already adopted these “socialist” ideas.

To summarise: “Capitalism is where the bosses rip off your ideas and your hard work to make big bonuses for themselves and shaft the workers.” You get dumped and they claim all the kudos for themselves. I think they have it pretty much right! Long gone are the days when hard work benefitted the worker.

  • thegeorgespyman

    I can’t blame them really. Capitalism has been the legalized exploitation of nations and its people for the all mighty dollar. There is nothing intrinsically noble about the system. However, ‘socialists’ come on the scene with magnanimity and quickly turn despotic stealing the resources of the people they exploit. A constitutional republic and an economic system are mutually exclusive. A political system of exploitation is a horde of leeches sucking the wealth and dignity out of a nation and its peoples while anesthetizing them into accepting the process with propaganda.

  • Ricardo Fontanot

    I am talking about what the US founding fathers saw in religion and what made the US great, and what is disregarded right now and makes the US lousy: “we are all created equal”. Easy to say, difficult to understand. Of course, I don’t mean that me and a woman are “equal”, as I am male and she is female, e.g., different. All snowflakes seem to be identical, but no one is the same as the other. I have learned from God that the person who doesn’t know what a dichotomy means, doesn’t understand life. I don’t think that I really undestand everything in its most profound meaning, but I believe in the principles of more “evolved” (Creation is Evolution, from the pitecantropus erectus or what have you to you and me right now and further down the road) and more “primitive” beings, and I make a big effort to read and learn from more evolved human beings, as a real change from within is needed to not get extinct as a human race, leaving all those beautiful and more evolved civilizations out there in the Universe without us. They would miss us!
    When I speak about marijuana, I am not speaking in favor of using it as a drug (smoking it). You know why I don’t believe in “Law and Order” and/or the so called “Law of God”, etc.? I will give you a very, very practical example, related to what you are saying about marijuana. The “Law”, worldwide, promotes assasination, as far as the victim in question doesn’t die immediately. They offer you cigarretts and cigars (I am not in favor of smoking, marijuana, or forced smog intake in the City of Mexico, or anything), where it is clearly stated: you are prone to dying of cancer, if you smoke! But, please smoke, as this is an industry that was here from the beginning as you can see by visiting Jamestown in the Eastern US. They planted tobacco, and there are the names of tobacco brands as city names all around: Virginia. Raleigh, Salem, etc. If you kill and the person dies immediately, they call you a criminal and send you to jail. If a physician disconnects, without special permission, a person that lives like a vegetable connected to respirators, and so forth, he is called a criminal. Let me say something to you: Assasination by killing the victim immediately is far, far more compassionate, than making the victim suffer with chimiotherapy, radiation, and so forth, disregarding, by the way, all those “miraculous” cures that are not allowed or are at least ridiculed by the FDA, because they are not a big industry, like the farmaceutical industry is. The only thing that matters to modern greed is big industries, big money, selling weapons as a big industry to The Chapo Guzmán in Mexico (learn about “Fast and Furious”). And what entitles killing, prostitution (covert, against the law, but making big money in Las Vegas), drugs (in famacies and elsewere) Organized Religion and so forth is money and power. Make others fear and you are The Lord. Tell them about Satan and speak against reincarnation, so that they are afraid of only having one chance, and you will reign obove mankind. Ask the Rotschild family about these principles. God never judges. God gives you not only one more chance, but an infinite number of them. There will be no final judgement by him. But terrible times are coming, for we reap what we sow. We are made to the image of God, and we are very, very creative in building atomic boms and drones (sent to Pakistan by Obama, killing civilians there) and so foth. We are God in creating, for good and/or evil. We decide, not God, for He gave us Free Will. Pleasee try to change your beliefs, for that is the only thing that will change our world. Don’t be afraid (of The Devil, of God, or anything) for Love is the opposite of Fear.

    There is never ever a wedge between anybody (any live being) and God. This is false human believe. And our believes drive us crazy. I would suggest not to realate our behaviour with God’s approval or disapproval. God doesn’t need anything: Not that we behave right, not that we bahave wrong. We are creatures in evolution, and we move from darkness to light. Light cannot be seen, if not surrounded by darkness. God created What Is Not God (darkness), but What Is God at the same time, because There Is Nothing But God, in order To Know Him (Her) Self through His (Her) Creation, that is, through us and our journey from darkness to light. So, at the end, nothing matters. And within what is not perfect there will come a day we will see nothing but perfection.
